2 Angular Position ± Axis of rotation is ² through the center of the disc ² Perpendicular to page ± Choose a fixed reference line ² e.g. x-axis ± Point P is at a fixed distance r from the origin Angular Position (cont.) ± Point P will rotate about the origin in a circle of radius r ± Every particle on the disc undergoes circular motion about the origin, O ± Polar coordinates are convenient to use to represent the position of P (or any other point) ± P is located at ( r , θ ) where r is the distance from the origin to P and is the measured counterclockwise from the reference line Angular Position (cont.) ± As the particle moves, the only coordinate that changes is θ ± As the particle moves through θ , it moves though an arc length s . ± s = r θ ² Simplest choice ² θ measured in radians ² Full circle: 2 π r=r θ so θ =2 π r s s Angular Position (cont.) ±
